No wonder the education system is in such a state if you buy toys like this for children, then don't treat them properly. What children need is books and pens, not electronic gadgetry.

This sounds like a run motor issue and will require major disassembly to repair and can be done fairly inexpensively. However, it's not really a user serviceable problem and should be done by a qualified service technician.

How to realign kodak dx6490


Hello Teacher, Since we have nothing to lose but a DX6490 try to gently push the lens housing in with the palm of your hand until it is fully seated, then gently pull the lens assembly out to it's extended position,now gently push it back in. Install battery and turn it on to see what happens. If this works, great, if it does not work list the camera on E-Bay for parts and I may buy it !!!
Best Regards, Russell
